Well - the Crowdfunding campaign didn't quite work out as well as I had hoped.
So I decided to try something else (and I have some more news which I will tell you about in a bit).
I have set up a Justgiving page at https://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/inkyworld in another attempt to fund the blog.
There is a bit of an added incentive for you.
Part of the money will be used to keep this blog going and the other half will (hopefully) be used to publicise a project which I am rather excited about.
Some of the more long-standing readers will know I am involved in a photography project. Until now I have kept some of the details a mystery.
As you know - I have been trying to give you tasters of some of the barriers and challenges which I face due to my sight. This is very difficult through the medium of the written word. That is apart from telling you about my problems with bright light, darkness, and angles (particularly staircases). Attempting to tell you exactly how much I can see without my glasses on - for example - really needs photographic evidence. Never mind the fact that my eyes can play the weirdest tricks on me even when I have got my glasses on.
I can waffle on and on about how I have difficulties with things which you may be able to do automatically without thinking - however, all that will happen is I will bore you to sleep.
If the project comes off as I hope - it will give you a first hand taster of things which you may never have to think about. It will be the next best thing to actually borrowing my eyeballs themselves.
I have seen some photos already and they look pretty impressive. They have captured things almost exactly as I see them.
However, without your funding I cannot carry out my plans for the project - or keep inkyworld going.
